Fans of Starz’s hit series Power Book II: Ghost have long marveled at Tariq St. Patrick’s (Michael Rainey Jr.) way with women. Tariq has had relationships and flings with three women on the series: Diana Tejada (Latoya Tonodeo), Effie Morales (Alix Lapri), and Lauren Baldwin (Paige Audrey-Marie Hurd).

While Tariq successfully dated Lauren, had several moments with Diana, and currently dates Effie, fans have long inquired about Michael's relationship life off-screen.

Truth be told, Michael has no reputation for being a player. In fact, Michael is known to be a one-woman man and has been rumored to date fellow co-stars, influencers, and models.

So, who is the leading lady in Michael Rainey Jr.’s dating life? Here’s everything that we know.

Michael Rainey Jr. is currently dating social media influencer Haile Rose.

Sorry Power fans! If you were hoping to shoot your shot at Michael, it appears that time has run out. Michael is currently dating social media influencer Haile Rose.

Folks first got wind that Michael was off the market when Haile posted a now-deleted video of the pair’s intimate moments together for his 22nd birthday, via The Shade Room Teens. Too cute!

“City girls down 1000,” Haile captioned the video.

Michael responded, “You up 10K.”

There’s no telling when exactly the pair became an item. However, both Haile and Michael have been posting one another on their respective social media pages since September 2022.

Since most celebs keep their romantic relationships on the low before going public, we can assume that the pair started seeing each other in early 2022.

Aside from Haile’s interests in beauty and fashion, she’s also an advocate for mental health and regularly shares positive and uplifting posts with her followers.

Truth be told, actors can’t help if they have chemistry on-screen. However, it doesn't mean that a romance is brewing.

Since Michael’s famous love square had Power Book II: Ghost fans in a chokehold, many believed that he had to have been dating one of the ladies.

Not to mention, Michael was known to be a bit flirty with his fellow co-stars on social media. However, neither Alix nor Michael ever confirmed a romance.

Michael also never confirmed that he and Paige were in a relationship. As for Paige, she officially cleared up the rumors in a January 2022 appearance on The Real.

“I know everybody thinks I’m his age, but I’m way older,” Paige says to Jordin Sparks, Loni Love, and Adrienne Bailon. “Maybe he’ll be like my second or third husband. But we gotta give him some time to grow, you know. Plus, I have to stay single, because of your question earlier Adrienne, I’d love to do The Bachelorette.”

So there you have it!
